FAA Considering Streamlining Commercial UAV Flight Approval Process

Prairie Business Magazine has published a article that suggests that the FAA is working on streamlining approvals for commercial UAV flights.  The start of the process is to use a current certificate of authority for multiple uses and not have to obtain a new one for each new UAV deployed in to United States Airspace.

The change could be announced as soon as next week, around the time of a US Congress UAV hearing on March 31, 2015.

It is not a complete opening of the skies to what some UAV operators are requesting but it is a step in the right direction.
